    I just installed champaigne gold SDRs with 225/45/17 Hankook Ventus R-S2 Z212 tires on my wagon. When this week of rain finally stops and I get a chance to wash my car, I'll have to take some pics of them mounted.

    Wow - very clean. I think this is a case where cleared headlights would work well with the white motif. Painted sideskirts and derailing would just about make it complete.

    Correct- they are .1" taller- although it would take a good eye to see .1" difference

    What you will notice is a dramatic increase in grip w/ wider and stickier tires

    It would only decrease the gap by .05". The other half of the differance lifted your car .05" further off the ground.

    They look nice though.

    Yeah, it's night and day. The car no longer feels like it is going to wash out every time I take a corner aggressively - instead it goes where I point it, and I've tried turning ever tighter and it just keeps turning in. The Hankooks grip and push back like R-compound in auto-x - I don't notice any sidewall softness like some have said compared to Azenis. I haven't been able to get them to break loose on the street and they grip at least as well as RE92s in the rain on turns and had no problem doing 80 mph with lane changes on the highway in heavy rain. Worth every dollar of $400 and I would tell everyone not to waste over $100 on any suspension mod until they get max perfomance summer tires.

    I have a hard time convincing folks of that, but it's spot on.

    The Prodrive springs reportly drop ~ 1.5" in front, 1" in the rear- this is for a sedan. With a wagon when you run sedan springs you'll normally see an additional 8mm ish drop- making the Prodrives a pretty close to even drop for the wagon.

    These guys have the 02/03 and 04+ ones

    WOW! i didn't know the prodrives offered an aggressive drop like that. i've alway's heard they were like 1.1 in the front and 1.0 rear. what makes the wagon get an additional 8mm? i might have to reconsider the prodrive route. anybody have pics of their bugeye wagon on prodrives? (possibly w/ 18's) thx.

    Two things- the Prodrives lower more than advertised is what most foks are finding, two the wagon when using sedan springs (which Prodrives are) lower ~ 8mm in the rear more- front the same- this is due to wagon springs normally coming w/ longer free lengths in the rear vs sedan.
